Although I've lived in St. Charles, Missouri my entire life and explored many of the little shops and restaurants on historic Main Street, there are still a few nooks and crannies that I haven't been to.

 This little goldsmith shop sits off the beaten path, near the Missouri River and on a walk recently, the little cottage caught my attention

The goldsmith is still open for business, by appointment but she wasn't in on the day I visited. I enjoyed exploring her doorstep anyway and admiring the beautiful keyhole and wondering if there is still an antique key that fits it. 

The rippling glass window showcases pieces of a silver tea service and pieces of coral, little boxes and things that look like they've been in that window for 200 years. I wonder if this place was always the home of a smith, working in the yard behind the building during the days of the Lewis and Clark expedition, which began right here.
